Thanks for your effort and comments.
Maybe I need to clarify things.
The problem is not that I necessarily want to get forced subtitles to appear, more that I end up getting full subtitles because the forced check box doesn’t stay checked.
I have a EVA8000 at home so I normally encode DVDs before watching them, so I am never sure whether there are forced subtitles or not. Prison Break Season 3 is a great example, as there is a lot of Spanish spoken with English subtitles. As far as I am concerned these would be forced.
Are you saying that DVDFab will only keep the forced subtitles checked if it finds any?
With the original Bones S1 D1 example. On the first title I was able to select the English subtitle stream and checked forced subtitles.
On the next 3 titles the forced checkbox did not stay checked so I ended up getting full English subtitles.
My problem is that by default I always keep forced subtitles checked as you never know what languages are going to be usedin the show, but now I end up getting full subtitles because the check box doesn’t stay checked.
